Enjoy walking, cycling, Go Ape and concerts from our forest-based site nr Chester.

Cheshire’s largest area of woodland surrounds our Delamere Forest Club campsite. Located in the west of the county near Chester, Delamere Forest covers some 950 hectares providing outdoor lovers with boundless walking and cycling opportunities on its network of paths and trails direct from the campsite. There’s a Go Ape! course too – with zip wires and Tarzan swings - for those with a head for heights.

The mixed deciduous and evergreen trees of the forest surround the campsite. These green surroundings complement the campsite’s many environmentally-friendly features. The excellent on site facilities include a parent and child shower room, laundry and washing area in addition to showers and toilets. The site shop stocks the essentials, further afield RM Wilding and The Hollies farm shops supply a wider range of produce.

In nearby Delamere, Abbeywood Gardens incorporates a two kilometre wildlife walk, while Stonyford Cottage Gardens at Northwich has a woodland walk. Enjoy a boat trip along the River Weaver at the Anderton Boat Lift also near Northwich. The campsite is also handy for Oulton Park motor racing circuit near Tarporley.

To venture further afield, you can catch a train at Delamere station a short walk from the campsite where regular services operate to Manchester and Chester.

We were apprehensive following some negative comments here but shouldn't have been.

This review is for Delamere Forest

We were apprehensive following some negative comments here but shouldn't have been. It's an excellent site. We arrived late yet were guided to our pitch and on to it - absolutely necessary since it was too dark to see anything! A very friendly and helpful welcome. Ideally situated for Snowdonia and the N. Wales coast. We also took the train from nearby Delamere Station for a day in Manchester including an excellent concert at the Bridgewater Hall. Buy a combined train/tram ticket to Altrincham and use the Manchester tram system from there onwards - your ticket covers you for travel on the trams all day. Superb value!

Great site in a beautiful part of the country. Friendly staff and good clean facilities.

This review is for Delamere Forest

Great site in a beautiful part of the country. Friendly staff and good clean facilities. Great for dog owners with the forest, and its many trails, literally on the doorstep of the site. For those travelling further afield it is approx 11 miles from Chester (25 mins by car). Tarporley and Nantwich also nice places to visit. Several very nice pubs a short car drive away. We will be back!

Arrived mid afternoon and the very friendly staff promptly directed us to the allocated pitch.

This review is for Delamere Forest

Arrived mid afternoon and the very friendly staff promptly directed us to the allocated pitch. However with hindsight, would have selected a pitch deeper into the site, given we were at the exit point and had to cope with the inconsiderate campers who thought it fun to empty their bottles into the bottle skip from a great height to see how much noise they could make etc. I would also agree with other reviews, the roads when dry are very dusty and in need of repair. That said Delamere is a lovely site and provides instant access to the forest and surrounding areas and I defy anybody to walk each and every path. Would we go back, yes definitely but look for a pitch deeper into the site.
